RootsMagic Free Classes Online

Tip of the Month: Free Online Classes
While this month's tip isn't exactly a tip on how to use a specific feature in RootsMagic, it is a tip on where to find tips on using RootsMagic.

Many of our users have taken advantage of our free online classes (webinars), but there are a lot of people we talk to that say they didn't know about these recorded webinars, or haven't gotten around to watching any of them.  That's a shame, because not only are all of these recorded classes free, they are also available 24-7, 365 days a year.

Have you wanted to know more about:
  • RootsMagic To-Go (running RM from a flash drive)?
  • How to publish a book with multiple chapters, index, table of contents, and more?
  • What all the different reports offer?
  • How to enter sources better, including census records?
  • Techniques to search for information more easily?
  • Creating a CD with your data and pictures that you can share with family?
Those are just a few of the 40 free online classes available.  There are even classes on how to get started using RootsMagic (creating a new file, entering a new person, etc).

And not only are these classes free to watch online, you can even download classes to watch when you aren't online, or to take and show in your RootsMagic user group, society meeting, or Family History Center.

To watch or download any of these free online classes, just go to:


  1. Bless you.
    Hundreds of hours in RM, now to print the book, and I could not figure out how. I googled "rootsmagic book chapters" and your page came up and directed me to the webinars posted by rm.
    Thank you,

  2. I'm happy to see that you found our blog and that it helped you, Don! The RootsMagic webinars are quite comprehensive and very well done. They take things one-at-a-time and explain them thoroughly.
